The struts reminds me of the struts from a double lever oscillator.  While the upper yoke reminds me of Verity Lite.  The bottom...have no idea but I do like the big brass tilting knob.

Nice fan ! never seen an orbital with tab base but that is definitely a veritys base, it has the same neck as my veritys fans... maybe an early fan or they simply used up early bases that were from earlier models ? neck screw/knob is same style used on the 8" zephyr i'd say its 100% pucka (correct) cage looks like its "light"  im assuming its a 16" ? if its a 12" ive got a strut you can have (freebie) looks like you have 1 missing... nice fan and imho not a frankie and very rare , now watch me be corrected lol ! 


Thanks for sharing... Phil

It is a 16 inch.  Thank you for the kind offer Philip...only missing that one part.

I have a theory … 


I've seen the Verity's Zephyr in two different iterations: those with lower serial numbers that have an oscillator linkage and oscillator box like the Zephyr fan Paul Pierson once owned:


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ISYLrBrtlzY


Zephyr fans with higher serial numbers have an oscillator box and oscillator linkage like the one Al Noti referenced in his thread currently posted on the Antique forum. His fan is here:


The stouter oscillator linkage mounting point (at the C-frame) and sturdier oscillator box caps appear to be improvements added to the Zephyrs with higher serial numbers.


Louis's fan appears to have, IMO, the same oscillator linkage design as what is used in the Zephyr models with higher serial numbers. I would guess that Louis's fan was manufactured concurrently with later Zephyr models.  I don't know enough about the bases of Verity's fans to draw any conclusions. Sure is a nice fan though.

Hi Louis

As I said in our PM thread on this subject, I went to Birmingham in the UK in October and spent a day and photographed all of their archives on Veritys. I finally got fed up trying to decipher those poor photocopies.

It looks to me like the Veritys wanted to produce a larger 16" fan which would double as a wall mount and or a pedestal desk fan. It seems like your fan is their first attempt. They produced a nice brass joint with a good easy to use handle. This was an elegant but over complex and expensive solution. It did yield a very flexible wall mount fan with a wide range of movement. Probably too wide a range. Taking their engineering drawing of your fan and predicting the full range of movement indicates quite a wasteful range of movement for a wall mounted fan.


Veritys original drawing as photographed.



Something simpler and perhaps less likely to have the cage foul the base in extreme positions would be better.
So it seems that Veritys simplified their design quite quickly. The later fans had a simpler joint lower down in the middle of the base tower.


Later model with mid tower joint and shorter 'Barrel' gear box

It seems that this may be the reason they changed the orientation of the gear box to produce the barrel shape with vertical worm drive shaft to stop the longer gear box from fouling the base.
This was a simpler and cheaper modification.
Your model is thus uncommon if not rare. I wonder how many AFCA members have this model with this base? I certainly do not.
Congratulations.

If you re-sample your photos (I use Windows Paint) by 50% or so, the images will appear correct, not rotated.All these new phones take Hi-Rez images, enough pixels to make a poster from! I also crop while the image is in paint, save as a JPG.

I have an iPhone, if I crop the picture, while still in the phone, ever so slightly, the image displays straight up.

My photos were the right way up.
The drawing showed the prediction of the range of movement on a wall mount fan made from the previous vertically drawn fan and the fan photo was of an illustration of a wall mount fan from the Veritys' catalogue?

By the way, I too discovered the trick of marginally clipping a .jpg in Photoshop to make it load the right way. Must be some code in the digital image that resets when you clip.
